NMC B3 Operational Model 47 by 51 Northern Hemisphere Tropospheric Analyses, daily 1959-1972

| DOI: 10.5065/EKRE-TB25

This dataset contains daily gridded Northern Hemisphere analyses from NMC's operational model on a 47 by 51 polar-stereographic grid centered on the North Pole. Available parameters include geopotential height, temperature, stream functions, thickness, and vertical velocity for various levels and layers through the troposphere. In general, the grids cover the period from January 1959 to December 1972, but periods for individual parameters will vary.

Citation counts are compiled through information provided by publicly-accessible APIs according to the guidelines developed through the project. If journals do not provide citation information to these publicly-accessible services, then this citation information will not be included in RDA citation counts. Additionally citations that include dataset DOIs are the only types included in these counts, so legacy citations without DOIs, references found in publication acknowledgements, or references to a related publication that describes a dataset will not be included in these counts.
